It’s been a trend. Bigger and bigger slabs of marble and granite for flooring. As if bigger is better. Or, bigger is better looking.
Actually watching the slabs in a huge stockyard is quite different from watching the slabs as floor amidst the enclosing walls.
In a huge stockyard, a big slab may still not look as big. In a room, a big slab may seem to exhaust the floor.
Big rectangular slabs look downright ugly. Irregular ones may still look much better. But you gotta see the small irregular slabs, in fact more in the form of flagstone, as part of floor. Unfortunately, even with so many images proliferating on the web, in the catalogues and magazines and elsewhere, it’s hard to find the the different kinds of floors side by side to compare.
Big slabs look ugly. Sure, we are not rich builders or famous architects. We are mere stone suppliers, or as they use that term in the SAP software, we are mere vendors. What do the vendors know!
